We are now taking applications for the 2013 season. The season runs from late June to early October.
Are you a keen skier or snowboarder? Is the lifestyle more important than the financial reward? Are you outgoing, motivated and hard working? Do you want to be part of a small, friendly team? If your answer is YES to all these, we are looking for you to join our team for the 2013 season.
All Applicants Must:
- have a valid work permit/visa
- be available for face-to-face interviews in Fairlie in the Autumn
- have excellent customer service skills and be able to communicate well in English
- have a valid NZ or International Drivers Licence

THESE ARE NOT NEGOTIABLE - IF YOU DO NOT FIT THE CRITERIA YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
We are a small, privately owned commercial ski area. During the season, we employ about 18 staff (this includes instructors employed by the Ski School); we pride ourselves on our small, friendly team - with everyone able and keen to pitch in and help wherever and whenever needed. We require a staff that are able to communicate well in English, as there is a lot of radio communication and clarity is essential. The mountain is a non-smoking zone for staff members.
The nearest town is Fairlie, a very compact village that services the surrounding farm land. The only on-mountain accommodation is for the Couple on Mountain position, which has already been filled for the 2013 season. Staff need to obtain their own accommodation; furnished rentals or inexpensive motels can usually be found in Fairlie or Lake Tekapo.
When the mountain is open, everyone works. Days off occur when the mountain is closed due to snow/wind, and may be rostered later in the season.
The mountain is a non-smoking area for staff. Smokers be aware you will not be permitted to smoke at any time on the mountain.
